      Chicago anyone??

      Hey guys and gals, just curious if there's any chicagoland Volvo peeps around.. I've been a Volvo fan for quite some time, but finally driving one as a daily driver.. Love it and all its expensive quirks. 2004 Volvo V70r m66 6 speed. Titanium gray, Nordic blue leather.. Lots of performance mods, and still more to come. I see a few "R" owners zipping around and waving, but no chance of chatting with covid19 lurking at every corner.. So maybe I can make contact with other locals through this forum.. Cheers to all, and stay healthy!

      Welcome to Swedespeed. I’m kicking around and location should be evident, LOL. There’s maybe 8 people who are close by and fairly active on Swedespeed, but some are in different platforms (P80, P2, SPA) and therefore different sub-forums. Not really sure who lurks, but there are some. I’ve been thinking it’s time for an IKEA midsommar get-together this year.

      Edit: As an P2R owner, you could check out the “spotted” thread. You may have already been spotted.

      Um, that’s quite a broad statement. You hate everything about Chicago? Or just the mechanics? Which garages have you already visited? I’d ask why you chose to move here, but I have the feeling it wasn’t a choice. Hyde Park has some great areas, although the looting hit some of the retail corridors pretty hard, and the restaurants are mostly having a tough time due to COVID-19. Don’t get me wrong, there’s plenty of fücked up sh!t in Chicago, for sure. But there’s also plenty of awesome things here too. Every neighborhood has a different “feel” to it. Just my $0.02. YMMV.
